Union Pacific aud Reading. Tba trading waa heavy. At tha outset, Etael ruled lower, rallied V. receded and at tbe end of the first honr wss about uncbangM from tha previous closing. Union Pacific and Reading fol lowed the aame trend with somewhat wider price range but at ha end of tha hour atood and lower, respectively. Le blgb Valley aold down 1 In the Initial trading and later recovered tbe loaa; other iaauea followed tho general trend of tba market with limited transactions and with in a narrower price range. Tbe business waa profeaalonal In tba extreme. The char acter of the dealings waa a mtxtnre of teatlng operations of tba maatara of manlp ulrtiona aad tha erenlng-up of accounts over Souday aa well aa for tbe presidents message, to be analysed Monday. Tba pros pect of an unfavorable bank statement waa conducive of selling operations. In con servative quartera it la believed tha tech nical condition of the market baa been greatly Improved by the elimination of weakly margined accounts and the exten sion of the bear position. The London market for American Iaauea waa ateady. leading stocks ruling VsO above parity. Although a continuation of tha pressure which haa been noted during tba laat week waa again In evidence during tba greater part of tha day'a eeeston, atfll tha selling wss not aa aggreeslve aa beret of ore and there wera In evidence algna of a desire on the part of certain factora to cover abort contracta and at tba aame tl me buy ing of a moeh better character than had been wltneaaed for some time waa In prog ress. The buying of Steal waa especially good In tba laat naif hear. The bank atatementa Issued after the close waa rather unsatisfactory, particu larly aa In tba exhibit a of both tha actual condition of tha clearing house institutions and oatslde banks, a marked Increase in loana waa recorded, w bleb aeemad unnatural In view of tba drastic sailing which has taken place lately. The loaa of caab waa creator than anttclcated. The latent phaae of tho railroad labor altuation, It la believed, will serve to strengthen tba poattlon of tba carriers In their contention for moderate) freight rata Increases. In eonaarvatlTe ouartera the feeling prevslls that basic conditions have not improved to an extent tnai waoia war rant an upward movement In security prices. NEW YORK STOCKS. (By A. W. Tbomeon Co.)

The company's gross earnings for the fiscal year ending with the current month are expected to be between $63,000,000 and $65,000,000. PANAMA CANAL EXPENDITURES. "Expenditures on account of the pur chase and construction of the Panama canal to date aggregate $220,708,000." aaya the December circular of tbe National city bank of New York. "Of this sum $S7. 309.000 waa provided by bond sales, aud $133,399,000 haa been advanced from the general fund of the treasury, which is now entitled to reimbursement in that amount. This fact constantly auggeata a bond issue of some kind as a meana of replenishing tbe government's cash. Aa work on tbe canal progresses further inroads must be made into the treasury holdings. "Already thla fiscal year the genera) fund baa contributed $16,612,000 to canal ex penditures. At this rate oyer $23,000,000 muat be provided for the remaining seven months of the year to end June 30, 1911. Where tbe money la to coma from is a problem. Tbe tariff act' of Aug. 5, 1909, contained authority to issue Panama bonds at a rata not exceeding 3 per cent- to the amount of $2O,5r.0O0. "Thla la the sum determined upon as necessary to effect reimbursement to the treasury for advances from the general revenues and to pay for the work remain ing to be done before the canal 1s com pleted. These estimates, therefore, con template a further expenditure for con struction alone of $156,601,000. How this sum la to be provided and when are ques tions which government officials must face." DUN'S REVIEW. NEW YORE. Dec. 3. R. O. Dun A Co. 'a Weekly Review of Trade aays: Business, while not aa larga as was an ticipated a year ago, la. nevertheless, of fair proportlone and rests upon a basis of economic eoaditlone which in the main are satisfactory. The encouraging features are the unabated agricultural productive ness of the country, the absence of demor alising speculation, the lowneas of mer cantile et cks, which contribute ao largely to the aotudaess of the situation, the con servatism of tbe banks aa the guardians ot the country's credits and the algna of increasing relaxation In the money market. A noteworthy development of the week waa the decision of the steel manufacturers to maintain prices, and. although new busi ness la much below productive capacity, yet there la aa encouraging outlook for Im provement. Large shipments of dry goods for spring distribution is another encouraging indi cation, and the outlook in tbe shoe trade la described aa brighter. Reports from moat of the large dties, while not dis guising the fact that the volume of traas actiona ia below normal, indicate Improve ment and a generally hopeful feeling. Prices in the dry goods market are gen erally steady and there is a belief in some ?uarters that increased valuee will be orced by the high cost of raw material.

Butter Creamery ex- ter spoon when thrust into a cup of hot The Western Union Telegraph com pany has announced another innova tion in telegraph service called the "special ocean mail service" designed to save time in foreign correspond ence. A letter from San Francisco to London requires as much time across the continent as it does crossing the ocean. A New York merchant writing must post his letter week before the mail steamer from San Francisco or Van couver sails. The Western Union has arranged for the use of its night letter and oth er telegraphis service in connection with outgoing ocean mails so that this week of transcontinental time may be savea. its Aew lorn office win re ceive telegrams from any part of the country destined to European ad dresses and will forward them in a sealed specially addressed envelope by the first outgoing Atlantic steam ship mail. The same plan will be fol lowed in San Francisco, Seattle and Vancouver for Trans-Pacific mails. This will enable correspondents to be dispatched from any point of the United States for an ocean mail with in a few hours of tbe sailing time. The only charge in addition to tbe usual telegraph tolls to the ocean mail post will be five cents for postage. Tele grams should bear the full mall ad dress of the foreign correspondent for whom they are intended and marked "Care Ocean Mali" New York, San Francisco, Seattle or Vancouver aa the case may be. No charge will be made for the address. ' RICHMOIIDJEFEIITED Local Team Loses -to Indian apolis Bowlers.
